Error description

  • When routing RACF commands to another system with only trailing
    blanks overflowing to the next line, the empty line is omitted
    from the JCL inlined data, leaving the concatenation character
    appending two commands together

  • Manually remove continuation character of generated RACF
    commands with only trailing blanks following on the next line.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Admin submitting a batch    *
    *                 job to execute generated commands stored in  *
    *                 the CKRCMD data set in interactive mode.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Admin might generate incorrect  *
    *                      commands in the CKRCMD data set when    *
    *                      the generated commands are to be        *
    *                      submitted in a batch job.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When the CKRCMD data set generated by zSecure Admin contains
    commands that are exactly 71 characters long and are submitted
    as a batch job, the generated JCL contains incorrectly formatted
    commands that might fail to execute.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Admin has been modified so that the generated JCL to
    run the commands stored in the CKRCMD file is formatted
    correctly.
